GAAA Squares Done, Pre-Edging

Pattern: Great American Aran Afghan booklet
Yarn: Paton's Classic Wool (worsted weight)
Needles: US Size 8
Previous entries: Squares One to SixSquares Seven to Twelve, Squares Twelve to Seventeen

There are twenty four squares in the booklet and I knitted every one of them, in the right order. The biggest square came out about 14"x14". Next I will add black edging to the other twenty three so they match in size. When it's all done, the blanket will be at least 56x84, which is more than seven feet long (with final boarder). I think it's big enough.

Holy Smokes! That's a lot of knitting! But it yields a lot of blanket...:)

Wow, what a great blanket to snuggle under this winter. Nice job.

That makes me want to make one now! You just knit lots of big squares. Yours are fancy with cable patterns though.
I can't wait to see it all sewn together!
